          The Flash Asset Xtra is part of the Authorware program and the Xtra
          required to run flash files comes with Authorware. In other words the
          end user does not need to have the flash player installed and you do not
          need to worry about the version they have. This is probably the most
          stress free way of using flash within Authorware. The downside is that
          the asset extra only supports up to Flash version 6 currently as we have
          not had an update recently.

          If you use the ActiveX version, it is the flash player on the target
          machine that is used, so you need to make sure the end user has the
          appropriate version for what you need....This is *likely* (but not
          necessarily) a later version that version 6.
